"Times are changing" – Gurumaharaj on food and the decision to go vegan (Vrindavan yesterday)

Srila B.A. Paramadvaiti Maharaj settling the matter with milk products, white sugar, and non-organic food (and pointing at some time-related imbalances).

"You could say, milk from the market is coming from the cow concentration camps. [---] Then comes the next thing, that this milk industry, producing this concentration camp-milk, -butter, -cheese, -yoghurt, – that industry puts chemicals into the cows and produces a milk that is not healthy. In other words, all these milk products, they're the reason why you have this disease and that disease and that disease, and why the hospitals are filled. This is not healthy food. [---] We want the Vrinda Family to go in a vegan lifestyle. [---] We didn't want to make it like an absolute, but at least we wanted to give that example." (3:54f)
